Giveaway winners!!!

So three people entered the giveaway  -_-   ~sigh~ A big "bust" for me  :(   Three little busts for them  :D
On with the "awards"...


In first place we have Broke n English from Dream Time Studios with this stellar entry:
It's frankly, awesome. Here is the back story on this one:
"the jewel in my paint wiping crown is this, my manky well used piece of paper. It may look haggard and tired, but this absolute workhorse lasted a very...very long time :) I now use two kitchen towel squares folded into 4, so I have like 16 layers of lovely soaky uppy power to get rid of my water, I change this towel about once a week, so about 402 towels a year maybe :) The towel pictured serviced me for over two years, that's right, same towel, TWO YEARS!! I honestly can't believe it myself sometimes, it became some sort of weird habit, and I paint almost every day! Two years! Same paper! Yes it is very crispy now, the poor paper, all the darker parts are crispy, so I have to store it very carefully, I could never bring myself to throw this out, so many painty memories :) This paper must have almost saved a whole branch on a tree all by itself, eco-warrior or what! "
See? Awesome.
First Place prize:

In second place we have ieuan from Sons of Isis with what looks like his take on the artist's best friend - the color wheel:
Second Place prize:

And in third place is Pawel from Zyncium Factory & Mad Spiderz with maybe the biggest palette I have seen (Seriously, it's like 2/3rds of his painting area):
Third Place prize:

That's it folks! No voting required. Three entries = three prizes! Congrats to the instant winners :) Hit me up at sgt.zab [at] gmail.com with your mailing addresses and I will send these busts out to you! Oh  yeah, the mystery mini! I said in case there was a tie - with the now defunct voting - I would have a mystery mini standing by. Well, I will lay out the boxes and then have The Agent Of Chaos place the mystery mini in one of their choosing before I seal them up for shipping  o_O  HA! Take that internet! I can still have random fun even when you try to stymie my attempts! Big bust indeed, grumble, grumble...

Thanks to those who entered and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain.

  2. Dude, I was totally going to enter but I've been away with work for 3 weeks! That's right, 3 weeks without even so much as picking up a brush!!! And I've still got a week to go.....I sit most nights in a cold sweat, pretending I'm painting something, laughing at my own jokes.......I need help.... :/

    1. That sucks. I'm about to enter that very same state -_- With the TV networks releasing their new shows I'm going to be chained to my desk until the beginning of June to promote them here in Canada. ~sigh~ If only my painting was good enough for enjoyment AND to pay the bills
      :(

  3. How old is your agent of chaos ? Mines just had his first burfday and at this point only enjoys redistributing my paints to secret locations hehe.

    1. Almost 4 now, and very possessive about the budding Blood angels force I painted up as an intro to the hobby. FYI: The rhino/razorback kit is a very durable "toy" for little ones. And now a warning: they will use it to break other stuff -_-

  4. Hehe, Deadspace1, always take some mini's and a cleaning blade with you, then you can trim wherever you may be ^^ Or is it just me that takes an hour to clean most minis :/

  5. Mine is a paper towel which I change each week or so, so it's not much to look at.

    1. I guess it all depends on your painting style and what you are painting right? Not to worry. I'll have other contests in the future where I may just raffle off the prizes as sometimes I tend to ask a lot of my readers ;)

  6. Got my bust today, and spanky shiny it is too, thanks Zab :) It no longer goes by the name ilnimar, but by the name Bazroy, in honour of Zab, and Roy Cropper (Google that if need be)
